It is generally considered that the bean bag was in fact created by Roger Dean, a 20 year old employee at a London small business - Hille Furniture - a business that was formed by a Russian emigrant in the east end of London around 1906. Roger Dean who worked along with Hille, is known as by some being the daddy of the bean bag. While his design and style for the Sea Urchin easy chair makes it possible for it to mould to the form of the body being beared, the development was of polyurethane foam sections and so quite different to the much more fluid design of the polystyrene beads inside a more contemporary bean bag. It was the Sea Urchin design which introduced him to Hille, and led to the commission to help design the interior of the newly-expanded Ronnie Scott‘s Jazz Music Club, in London.
The beanbag‘s level of popularity wasn‘t done any favours when a number of kids were hurt and even choked to death following crawling into the beanbag and breathing in the beans in the bag. In 1995, the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) in America recalled some 12,000,000 beanbags and demanded all chairs sold in the marketplace after that date to have childproof zip fasteners. A beanbag rebirth started in the latter part of 1990‘s thanks to manufacturers who started employing improved manufacturing techniques such as double stitching and better material along with aesthetic improvements which assisted in making beanbags more durable and appealing.
Beanbag chairs are the ultimate furniture for creating a relaxed, informal environment at home or elsewhere. They‘re ideal for rooms with children, both in bedrooms or playrooms, and for teenagers as well. Wherever you put them, beanbags are the perfect lounging chair. Beanbag chairs first became popular in the 1960s and 1970s in Europe, Canada and the United States as a symbol of the counter-culture. They resumed their popularity in the 1990s for those seeking informal but extremely comfortable furniture, and continue to be especially popular among young people and in spaces not associated with work or school activities.
These beanbag chairs come in a large selection of fabrics including corduroy, cotton drill, denim, nylon, fur, vinyl, suede and Fil-tec fabric for outdoor beanbags. Bean bag chairs made in cotton drill, denim or nylon are machine washable, however you should really think about removable liners. Emptying the beanbags is not an easy task and is very time consuming. Beanbag chairs, because they are a filled and upholstered furniture, come under a special category for safety standards. It is important that you know the contents of the child‘s beanbag chair and whether it meets the US flammability standards especially if you have children who use the bean bag chairs, Polystyrene beads and polyurethane foam are among the most popular bean bag chair fillers.
